Participating in the exercises were three of the flrst sixteen students who fifty years ago to a day trudged sixteen Inches of snow to the Moody home which hi had turned Into the flrst seminary building as the r*sult of having been driven by a yeasty urge to give up a profitable business to help ambitious youth to an education and to a better life. Conducting a revival In California at the time, Mr. Moody addressed the student body by letter: "I pray God that on this day streams of influence will be started that will go out to bless the world."

At the close of the anniversary ceremonies the three members of the flrst seminary class were entertained by Elliott Speer, president of the North- ,fleld schools, and Miss Myra Wilson, principal of the Northfield seminary.
